You would need a BIG solar panel (bigger than your car) to produce the 10-15 amps you say you require to generate the hydrogen as you drive.

Using the battery to do so sounds silly because you would drain it quickly, leaving you with a car you could not restart until the solar panel recharges it.

As stated above, relying on the alternator is even worse, because you have a net energy loss in the system, negating the purpose of this procedure.
